I wanted to bring up something,because lately it's something that is effecting us.
My mommy and daddy will be taking in a new 'sister' for us soon. We aren't looking forward to it, but I have to be honest, as a cat who was abandoned, that I understand. I mean, come on guys, I was living in an abandoned truck, eating whatever any kind person would give me when I got taken in. I am lucky. I know there is chicken in the refrigerator, and I know there is some with my name on it. I have this really nice warm Ikea chair with a warm blanket on it to sleep on. Our place is small, but my purrants are loving. Even when I get my 'notions' and take an occasional swat at dad, he lets it go, because he knows things weren't always easy for me.
Mommy's friend said 'You guys have really big hearts in a very small place'. Mommy shrugs. Daddy shrugs. I know Mommy worries, but she is a worrier. And they are making room for this new 'sister' because there is no where else.
So this is my pitch, Catster folks. Would any of you who might be considering getting a cat friend consider someone like me....funny, playful, good looking, charming with great looks and a nice nature and pretty healthy, aside from the stuff any cat could get...would you consider an FIV+ cat? I didn't get the FIV+ status myself....I probably got bit on the street when someone bigger and more aggressive didn't want to give up food. I mean it's tough out there ladies and gents!
My brother is what our vet thinks is a Russian Blue. I mean, he could be a purebred for gosh sake. He got dumped, too, and he's a good looking dude, even if he is a bully with other cats sometimes. He loves people. He meows funny. He has slightly crossed eyes! He has nice manners. He's also FIV+.
Now we're not up for adoption-no way. But there are so many nice cats that can't find homes or even shelters to go to because they won't take FIV+ cats. The new cat coming...she is FIV+. Not her fault. She's a little persian mix, whatever that is. Torite with big scared eyes. No one wanted her because of her FIV+.
Mom and Dad said 'it's ok. We do. We will.' They know we won't be happy, and maybe this will mean having a move to a bigger place eventually...and how to afford that...but they said yes because otherwise there wouldn't be a place.
So I do what a guy gotta do. I get as much chicken now as I can, to make sure I can. And I roll over on my head in my chair and nap...and know no matter what, I'm safe, warm and dry.
So one more of our kind will be too.
And that can't be a bad thing.

Is dis the kitty who lived in the barn? MOL! We knew she's end up with you guys! Your pawents can't help themselves. What are you gonna name her?
I don't believe she lived in a barn. A nice man named Tony, who takes care of cats who live outside found her. Unlike the urban kitties, she came right up to him, crying for attention and help. Much as I did..
He is overwhelmed. He has some physical issues. He had her placed with a nice girl who had a dog. She never had a kitty before, and the kitty became frightened and hid and would not eat.
Well, gotta tell you she'll do ok here with food...mommy and daddy make sure we get at least 3 meals a day. And sometimes chicken. So long as she doesn't get my chicken....
but I'll be the gentlecat here. If she really needs it, she can have it. I was once a homelss cat too.
Mommy and Daddy are going to keep her in a cage for a little bit, so we boys don't overwhelm her. See, we all live in 2 rooms. But we got a cat tree, and lotsa windows to look out and all. And hey, it sure is better than the streets.
Her name is Princess Antonia Llwellyn of Kew Gardens. Fancy name for such a little cat.
JEEEEEZZZ! What a formal name! But then again, she's had a hard life so being treated like a queen is pawsome and she deserves a royal name. You be good to her Ruffy boy! She may turn out to be a luv bug for you. So is she going to get her own page soon?
Gosh Finn, she's a sister....love interest? Maybe for you? Dude she's skinny but goodlooking. I will check her out. I haven't had a girl since before I was neutuered, you know? Now it's safe!hehe dude!
Mommy is gonna make sure she gets a page, I think she just wants to make sure she's here and ok.
OMG. I got more than I can handle at the moment. I guess you can never have too many girl kitties that love you though. MOL. I'm NOT bragging either. I'm a lucky boy with so many beautiful girls who love me. Tink just called me drool worthy. I'd say that's a darned fine compliment.
Hey cool...Tink, huh? Nah, you can never have too many fine feline girl friends. It's all the pouffy fur, dude. Now, me, I got big round eyes and I'm fine looking...modest too.
MOL! Apparently. MOL. Hey, when you look as good as we do, us orangies gotta stick together.
Wow - that's quite the name! But with the life she's had, she deserves to be treated like royalty.
